    1. Yes, they are. I offset them in what Bonnie Hunter called a serpentine layout. Blog entry about it here: http://theeclecticabuela.blogspot.com/2015/06/flowing-flowers.html

      Thanks so much for the kind words and for visiting my blog.

  6. You've shown so many beautiful scrappy quilts.I like the flowering flowers the best. I just saw Cheryl's note that these were all finished in 2015. That's incredible! That would take me a year just to do one of them! Congratulations on so many beautiful finishes - and the year isn't even over yet!

    1. Except for the paisley mystery quilt, I quilted all of them on my DSM. The paisley one was just to big for me to do, so I sent it to the long arm quilter.

      Thanks, and thanks for visiting my blog.

    1. Thanks, Judy. I used an older fat quarter bundle for that one called "Chicago World's Fair"--it's the only time I've used a line in a quilt--usually I just use various pieces of stash. I gave it to a cousin who was interested in the Fair.

      Thanks for visiting my blog!
